I  may have shared bits of this before but can’t recall.  It needs to be a mystery as it has a intended recipient.  Now that the Dragon Fruit quilt top is done I am back to hand quilting ths one with perle cotton.

The quilt top is done!  I’m very happy with it.  I have barring, backing and binding materials already but need to celebrate this milestone first.

This patters is from the October 2016 issue of American Patchwork & Quilting.
The majority of the fabric is thrift shop finds.

All the inside borders are done and attached now.

  Next comes the outer border. I was going to use the swirly black and white, but it is too busy for my eyes.  I put up a grey pillowcase to see what that would look like. 

I like the grey idea however that one is too light.  I do have a cut of a black and grey plaid that will work, but I  need to dig it out and see if there is enough. But not tonight.

It has been a bit since I have worked in this as I was considering quilting the blocks individually.  I decided against that in just the last few days and have started back up.

Since I am making the quilt smaller than the original pattern, I have opted to join the center rows before beginning to piece the inside border.  I must say that I am pleased with how it is turning out.
